Albert S. Cook

Albert Stanley Cook, age 102, of Holland, passed away peacefully on Monday, June 29, 2021, at Holland Village.

Born April 9, 1919, in the town of Baillieston, in Lanarkshire County, Scotland, he was the son of the late John and Margaret Dunlop Cook, and the widower of the late Mary Bergren Cook, to whom he was married for 65 years until her passing at the age of 100, on May 13, 2013.

Stanley, as he was known to the family, served in the Royal Navy from 1940 to 1946, crossing the Atlantic Ocean 42 times during World War II. He greatly enjoyed music, especially classical and opera, and had a special fondness for the traditional tunes of his youth in Scotland — including bawdy limericks. A seasoned traveler and skilled draftsman, he could be counted on to have a story related to any topic of conversation, accompanied by detailed drawings and diagrams. Stanley was also a talented carpenter and furniture-maker whose projects ranged from crafting tables and desks to building the three-bedroom home in which he raised his family.

Stanley is survived by his son Dr. James H. Cook and his wife Lesley Weissman-Cook; daughter Margaret Frantz and her husband Charles Frantz; and beloved grandchildren Rebecca and Jacob. In addition to his parents and wife, Albert is preceded in passing by his sisters Margaret Cook, Ella Perkins, and Jean McSporran, and his brother William Cook.

A private graveside service will be held on July 21, 2021, at Washington Crossing National Cemetery. Friends are invited to join the family for a special memorial on Zoom from 3:00 to 4:30 pm (EST). Email to receive a link to the Zoom gathering.

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in Stanley’s honor can be made to Philabundance or Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
